Biden Trying To Pivot On Inflation (But It’s Too Late)

The current high inflation rate of 3.4% has significant implications for the 2024 election. The Biden administration has failed to combat inflation effectively, with major contributors being food, electricity, shelter, and transportation services. Public sentiment shows a clear preference for the economic conditions under Trump’s administration compared to Biden’s. The Federal Reserve’s timing in raising rates has been poor. Biden faces a tough challenge in changing voter sentiment regarding the economy before the next election, as the media’s attempts to portray the economy positively do not align with Americans’ experiences.
